This is my favourite recipe at this time of year, easy to make, tasty, and great with mash and gravy!
And don't forget to get all the ingredients from the high street, your local butcher can help you pick the best sausages for this dish!
You will need:
12 meaty sausages
125 g plain flour
240 ml milk
240 ml water
4 tbsp dripping or lard
2 large onions, sliced
1 tbsp mixed herbs (dried is fine)
A pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.
Sieve the flour into a large bowl, then add the eggs, milk and water one item at a time, and mix well to form a batter. Stir in the salt and leave the mixture to stand for half an hour.
In a preheated, deep ovenproof baking tin on top of the stove, add 2 tablespoons of the dripping or lard, and fry the sausages until browned, then place in the oven to cook for another 10 minutes.
